I can't believe no one threw this one out there..

Frank Sinatra "My way"- if indeed it was an original-
Covered by Sid Vicious.

Both hit approximately the same amount of the notes and both were conscience altering enthusiasts. Although one had better taste in women, in my opinion.

That album has a lot of great covers (it being an album of covers). My favorite on there is "Train in Vain" by the Clash. Hard to say if the cover is better on that particular song because the original was so great. I think I slightly prefer the cover.
